Fremont County Tourism Council Community Funding
The Fremont County Tourism Council is accepting applications from community organizations for 2016 tourism funding allocations. Community organizations and non-profit groups that conduct special events which attract tourists and visitors to the area are invited to submit applications for funding assistance. The Tourism Council by-laws require that at least five percent of Fremont County lodging tax revenues each year be distributed to community groups to support their special events. The total amount of money to be distributed will be determined by the Tourism Council as part of their 2016 budget adoption in December 2015.
Application forms are available at the Fremont County Commissioners Office at 615 Macon Ave., Room 106, in Cañon City, at the Cañon City Chamber of Commerce office, 403 Royal Gorge Boulevard, or by clicking on the link below.

The Tourism Council will not hear oral presentations for funding request. Applicants will be notified no later than January 15th as to the distribution of funds.
